Fulfilling the long pending demand of the area residents, the Punjab Transport Minister Amarinder Singh Raja Warring on Wednesday initiated the upgradation work of Ghanour Bus Stand to be completed at a cost of Rs 83.50 Lakhs sanctioned in advance by him. The Transport Minister directed the department to complete the renovation work in a record time of one month to ensure people start using the upgraded facilities at the earliest.
Addressing the gathering on the occasion, Warring said the project was high on his priority list after he took over the reins of the Ministry and he had asked the Department to speed up the process of commencing the works after he had advance-sanctioned the requisite funds.
Lauding the Department for making all-out efforts to ensure Ghanour gets the upgraded Bus Stand, Warring said the tendering process has been completed and the project has been assigned to the Department of Rural Development and Panchayats.
I know this project was hanging fire for the last two years for one reason or the other, Warring said, assuring the citizens of Charanjit Singh Channi-led government’s proactive approach towards overall development. It is my duty as a Minister to ensure development of each and every part of Punjab through my department, Warring said.
The upgradation of the Bus Stand entails 5 bays for streamlining of passenger entry into buses especially for the elderly citizens,
Warring said adding besides the new boundary wall, clean drinking water and toilet facilities would be set up.
Dedicated CCTV Cameras, high mast lights, generator sets in addition to the separate male and female restrooms, and cabins with proper signages would form part of the new facilities, a spokesperson of the Department later shared.
Speaking on the occasion, the MLA Ghanour Madan Lal Jalalpur thanked the Transport Minister for the latter’s personal intervention in ensuring the Bus Stand work starts at the earliest. Every citizen of Ghanour is forever indebted to Raja Warring for fulfilling the long pending demand of the area, the MLA Madan Lal Jalalpur said adding that the works undertaken by the Channi Government would ensure Congress party returns to power in 2022 too.
On this occasion the newly appointed Director of PSPCL Mr. Gaggandip Singh Jolly Jalalpur while addressing the gathering said that Ghanour constituency was being made a model constituency in Punjab. District Rural Congress President Gurdip Singh Untsar and Nagar Panchayat President Narbhinder Singh Bhinda, Samana Shankar Jindal, Chairman Improvement Trust Samana, PRTC AMD Nitesh Singla, SDM Dr. Sanjeev Kumar, DSP Jaswinder Singh Tiwana, Executive Engineer, Department of Panchayati Raj Tejinder Singh Multani were also present on the occasion.
